Healthy Vegan Waffles

I’ve been transitioning myself over to a vegan diet. I’m planning on writing a proper post about it so I won’t go into it here. I have talked before about starting a vegan diet so if you want some tips head over there to have a read first, and then come back and make these healthy vegan waffles!

Most weekends we make waffles or pancakes as a family. It’s one of our traditions and I felt so sad that I couldn’t sit down to eat waffles with my family. I just love lazy weekend mornings where someone is cooking the waffles, the children are playing and I’m hopefully reading a magazine or newspaper! I knew I had to find an alternative for myself so I looked up a vegan waffle recipe. I found this one on The Minimalist Baker and made a couple of changes as I didn’t need mine to be gluten free.

You can use another oil such as canola oil or coconut oil. I originally used coconut oil but I felt that it gave the waffles a distinctly coconut taste. I also found that they didn’t rise as much as my usual waffles so I filled the waffle maker right up and kept an eye on them to tell whether they were cooked or not. These waffles are a little denser than my usual waffles but they were really delicious and I’ve also been having them in the evening with a dollop of vegan ice cream for a lovely treat.

I’m so glad that I’ve managed to make really nice healthy vegan waffles as it means that I won’t feel like I’m missing out at breakfast (or dessert) time.
